Shoot steam in the mountains and you'll get one heck of a show.

Norfolk and Western 611, during the Memorial day weekend of 2017.

N&W 611 leads NS train 954 through a driving rain across Goodview trestle along the ex Virginian railway en route to Greensboro, North Carolina. April 23, 2017. | πŸ“·: @_rdkphotography checkout his amazing work | #RailSupremacy #NW611

A steam locomotive operating in the fading sunlight of the fall always looks and sounds like a winning combination!
In this video we see N&W 611 (@fireup611 and @vmtroanoke) pulling a short passenger train while operating at the @nctransportationmuseum last fall.

Norfolk and Western 611 outside of Roanoke, Virginia. This engine is truly a thing of beauty.

Today is the 25th anniversary of the 611 tackling the famous Saluda Grade in Saluda, North Carolina.
The locomotive marched up the near 5% Grade with 5 cars in tow and then it looked like the grade would win on the last curve before reaching the top as the locomotive lost its footing and came to a stop.
Engineer Bob Saxtan and fireman Scott Merrell were able to get the engine to dig in and continue to the top of the grade and conquer this impressive piece of railroading. The boys at the Roanoke East End shops sure knew how to build them!
